It's been a long time!!!

I haven't posted for a quite a while and I do have many, many excuses - would you like to hear them all. They're all pretty lame - BUT, I've had the kids on school holidays, my girlfriend and her 2 daughters from Hawaii visiting for a few days, work, etc., etc., etc........... While I've been slack with posting and creating - my cyberspace friends from all over the world haven't, and here are the wonderful goodies I have received.
A stunning, knitted piece of art from my FlickR friend Susan. This piece is all knitted and beaded and the photo definitely does not do it justice - it really is beautiful. Susan made it in my colours and it arrived framed and ready to hang. Thanks Susan!!!!



This absolutely gorgeous hand quilted quilt (above), made in the most divine fabrics is from a wonderful FlickR friend Isabelle fromSwitzerland. Isabelle makes beautiful quilts and takes the most fantastic photographs. Take a look at Isabelle's FlickR site, you won't be disappointed!!! Thankyou so much Isabelle!!!!


Thankyou Lynda for this gorgeous postcard!! Wonderful colours and textures on this postcard. The photo really doesn't do it justice at all. Take a look at all the postcards Lynda made and then shared them with so many people.....

An ATC from Elke. Thankyou so much Elke. The hand-dyed fabric is really beautiful, and love the hand stitching and beading.



AND, Emmy is at her old tricks again!!! I asked Emmy how she made such a beautiful texture on her work, and she then sent me an ATC made the same way, plus a little sample. Emmy is so generous - thanks so much.......
